Barney is a horseman, but he is usually riding cutting horses, not driving a team of Belgians.
When we finally decided the harness was fitting pretty good, we led them over to my stone-boat, a wooden sled that has enough drag they wouldn't run far, if they did take off. We didn't know what to expect, except that his horses seemed really comfortable. Everything went great and we concluded that the Amish guy that broke this team did a great job.
Yes, it does look like we may need to tweak our harness fit just a little more.
It's a perfect tool for teaching horses and drivers, easy to get on and off. (that can be really important if there would happen to be trouble)
That's me, King and Kong
I was pretty relaxed after everything was over and it all turned out fine.
